Angies List review: Review from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

I submitted a negative review about a contractor. That contractor had other negative reviews from others. When I later searched Angie's List to see if that contractor had any more reviews, that contractor could not be found on the list and had zero reviews listed. When I contacted an Angie's List rep TWICE, they said the same thing. They said that the contractor was removed because he had too many bad reviews. I told them that people need to see these reviews so that they know who they are hiring. If you simply erase them from the list most people will assume that the must be OK because there are no negative reviews. Angie's List is doing poor contractors a favor by erasing the bad reviews. All the reps said was "I understand what you're saying but that's our policy." So I asked for my money back. What a joke!

Angies List - waste of money

I Sumitted info to 7 Angie's List contractors for some trim work around newly installed windows and doors. ONLY one contractor bothered to return my call and he told me that it was too small of a job for him to bother with. I was willing to pay top dollar for quality work. I found an independant contractor on my own who did a great job at a reasonable price. Angie talks the talk on TV - but her contractors don't walk the walk. I no longer subscibe to Angie's List - waste of money and promises she can't keep.

The contractors are not "Angie's." it is a platform for AL to try to make money by charging naive consumers for reviews they claim are more valuable because you're paying money for access to them. You don't have to pay to submit reviews, so the reality is companies listed on Angie's list and rated highly are no better than a company listed on another site.

The reality is that in it's early days AL would search out companies and post their info on the AL without the knowledge of the company. Then they try to coerce the companies into paying for ads, reviews, etc.

AL shoudl not be trusted, they are a total fraud. Save your money and just google it.

My wife and I were just harassed at our home by a contractor I never even hired thanks to Angies List. I had lodged a complaint on Angies as the contractor strung us along and blew us off to make bigger money. Our job was urgent at the time. The contractor comes to our...

I have had a similar experience. I was fortunate to be able to take a harassing phone call by a contractor and he have his name on the recording after I had informed him I was recording the call.
